kayak rod holder

just got my 1st kayak, a perception carolina 14. now i am looking for advise on a rod holder, one to start, no need to confuse things. i see rod holders mounted just in front of the cockpit. is that the way to go? i plan on using a spin cast or spinning reel, i have both. i see attwood and scotty holders which model is better for my application?

I use
both Scotty and Ram.Placement is whatever works best for you.Just be sure it wont interfere with paddle strokes.Many SIS yaks have enough room behind the seat for a few rods.
